My Side of the Bed - A Mirrored Night Stand

So, did you scoop up any great Labor Day deals over the long weekend?   I stopped in Kirkland's to see if they had any fun lanterns or outdoor decor items on clearance.  While I didn't find anything great in the summer clearance section, I did find the perfect chest to use as a night stand on my side of the bed!

Originally $299, I brought it home for $239.

After looking everywhere in the world for a mirrored chest with the right dimensions (at a reasonable price) I had basically given up hope that I would ever find one.  As you can tell it's a snug fit.  It's for this very reason that I wanted something mirrored.  The light bounces off the mirror and keeps this tight spot from looking overly cramped while still giving me some storage and a spot for personal items.

I borrowed a measuring tape from the sales clerk and lo and behold it was the perfect size!  Literally one half an inch more and it would be too big.  So while this may not be the steal of the century, considering it may be the only mirrored chest on the planet that will fit in the space beside my bed I promptly paid and brought this bad girl home!

I LOVE her!  She's girly and glamerific............

And she balances out the other side of the bed.  The side where I carved out a workspace for myself.  This is where I blog and it's also my hubs side of the bed.

He doesn't care what his night stand looks like.  Plus he has a whole room to himself for an office so he's not allowed to complain.  ;)

Did you score any good deals over the weekend?
